YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 11, NOYAN TAPAN. Greece will assume OSCE
chairmanship next year. As Noyan Tapan was informed by the RA
President’s Press Office, a delegation led by Nicholaos Kalantsianos,
the Special Commissioner of Greek Foreign Minister and of OSCE next
year Chairman, has visited Armenia to discuss Armenia’s expectations
from chairmanship of Greece and to exchange thoughts over the latest
regional developments.

Receiving the delegation members on September 11, RA President Serzh
Sargsyan said that Armenia attaches much importance to cooperation
with OSCE considering it an important component of Armenia’s
security. Mentioning that one of the pivotal issues for Armenia,
the Nagorno Karabakh settlement, is within the framework of OSCE,
he emphasized that over the past 14 years the situation of "neither
peace nor war" in many cases is preserved thanks to the active work of
OSCE Minsk Group, co-chairing countries. In Armenian side’s opinion,
OSCE Minsk Group still has many tasks and possibilities in solving
the conflict. S. Sargsyan said that talks and attempts on moving that
problem to other instances are aimed at changing the current format,
which is fraught with serious dangers.

The RA President also considered primary fulfillment of the Treaty
on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe by OSCE member-countries and
proper control over that process. Considering it as an important
instrument from point of view of exercising the right of human and
state security, S. Sargsyan said that its disregard, unprecedented
increase of military potential by some regional countries can result
in serious consequences.
